A closer look at Basschamps and the state of Falcon Lake
Last night I posted a pic of the top 5 weights. My winning weight guess was waaaaay off. I was at 26 pounds and change and the winning weight was 20.85. I knew I was in trouble when Team Power Tackle didn’t weigh (as in zeroed) a fish along with several other Falcon perennial power houses. Yes Falcon is fishing terrible folks. I have been saying it for a while now. I am going to throw some more stats your way to prove that statement and then I am done beating the dead horse. The words terrible and Falcon will not be said together again on this blog. I have certainly said it enough.
164 for teams
85 teams got skunked/zeroed………we are talking elite level anglers folks. Normally on Falcon zeroes are not true zeroes. What I mean is that people come in with their bag and see where the check line is and if they don’t have enough they simply throw their fish back for a chance at 500 bucks. (zero bonus drawing) These 85 zeroes were legit, as somebody said at the tourney they were proud of their 1 fish….lol. 52% of the field took a zero and most probably didn’t get a bite.
24 teams caught 1 fish………..66% of the field caught either 1 or no fish.
16 teams caught 2 fish………76% of the field did not catch a limit. The 4th place team fell into the 2 fish category. They were a 2 lb bass away from first, but two bites and two fish later 4th was it. They caught a beast of a fish though, weighing 11.03.
39 teams caught a limit………a quarter of the field. To break the top five you still needed to have a 6 lb average. (not bad)
I will be on the water putting in work starting tomorrow for 10 days before my next client comes in. There is a technique or location or both that will consistently put fish in the boat and im gonna find it.
